Draft Scout Leonard Hankerson News
12/16/12 - WR Leonard Hankerson had two TD catches, doubling his total of his previous 17 career games.
04/05/12 - WR Leonard Hankerson, who had offseason surgery on the torn hip labrum he suffered in Week 10 at Miami, should be good to go by June 1.
03/01/12 - WR Leonard Hankerson, the Redskins' third-round pick in 2011, had surgery on Feb. 21 to repair a torn labrum in his right hip, more than three months after he suffered the season-ending injury at Miami on Nov. 13.
"OK well the bad news is, I got surgery on Tuesday, and the good news is, I'll be ready 2 go b4 camp start," Hankerson tweeted.
That's camp as in training camp in late July which isn't good news since Shanahan had expected Hankerson to be ready for the start of offseason conditioning in April after rehabbing with Washington's training staff. The 6-2, 209-pound Hankerson had enjoyed a breakout game in his native South Florida with 106 yards on eight catches against the Dolphins on the day he was hurt.
That was the first 100-yard day by a Redskins rookie receiver in 162 games dating to 2001 and was one of just two by a Washington wideout in 2011 (Jabar Gaffney had the other while leading the team with 68 catches and 947 yards). Redskins receivers also had just 14 touchdowns last season, prompting the potential interest in signing a player such as San Diego's Vincent Jackson or drafting one such as Oklahoma State's Justin Blackmon.
